Detroit Vehicle Accident Causes Serious Injuries
The lawsuit arises out of a car accident that occurred on April 15, 2014. Our client was driving southbound on Connor at the intersection of Shoemaker Road in the City of Detroit when he was involved in a collision with another motor vehicle. He was slowing for the light at the intersection when a semi-truck rear-ended his vehicle.
As a result of the crash, he suffered several bodily injuries, including head, neck and back injuries that required treatment. He was also unable to work due to the injuries, required in-home care and help around the household.
Our client did have a no-fault insurance policy with Farmers Insurance. Under the term’s and conditions of his insurance policy, Farmers is obligated to pay for the certain expenses related to his car accident injuries and in accordance with the Michigan no-fault law.
Farmers Insurance Acts In Bad Faith
A no-fault claim was filed with Farmers, however Farmers has refused to pay for his no-fault benefits. Benefits that have incurred include medical bills, payment for attendant care (in-home nursing care), wage loss benefits for income lost due to time off of work, payment for replacement services or household services, and mileage expenses to and from medical appointments.
Since Farmers has neglected to pay, our Michigan no-fault insurance lawyers filed a claim against them to collect payment of all benefits. The amount in controversy exceeds the sum of $25,000.00.
We filed the claim in Wayne County Circuit Court and will be seeking reimbursement from past costs and all future costs that may incur.
It is important that victims injured in any type of motor vehicle accident do not wait to submit a claim for no-fault insurance benefits or sue the insurance company for denied benefits. Waiting too long due to Michigan’s strict time limitations could mean the difference between receiving payment or not collecting any compensation whatsoever.
